Located at The Bedok Marketplace, a place anchored on a concept not unsimilar to Salute Kopitiam at Alexandra is Ballistic Meatballs.This must be the first stall I have seen in Singapore, specialising solely in meatballs.

We were there to try the meatballs, but the wraps seemed equally tantalising, partly because of the good variety of interesting sauces. Crispy Wild Mushrooms ($3), Crispy Crab Balls ($10.50)
The Crispy Wild Mushrooms wowed surprisingly, for something that I admit I dismissed as too common to have anything worth noting initially. Ballistic's version however, has a thin crispy batter that is just the right balance of salty peppery. I couldn't stop. At just $2 with any meatball order, this is a must-order. Crispy Crab Balls ($10.50)
This was the shop's special when we popped by, in celebration of SG50. The Crispy Crab Balls, served with two mantou buns and chilli crab sauce, are made from crab meat and clams rolled together and coated in a crispy panko batter. One side was soaked in chilli crab sauce, which made it mushy moist, but at the same time, you can still get the crispiness on the other side. The chilli crab sauce complemented the meatball very well. This was our group favourite. Ballistic Signature Beef Meatballs ($5.90), Plain Jane Meatballs ($4)
The Ballistic Signature Meatballs did deliver, with the flavourful beef meatballs crispy on the outside, revealing an inner melted cheese filling. This came in closely to the Chilli Crab Meatball for me, so if the special is out, this is good. The Plain Jane chicken meatball however, was a tad too salty and its slightly flat shape caused it to be a little flat in the mouth in terms of texture, compared to the other completely rounded meatballs.
Judging by the meatballs we had, this stall well gives IKEA a run for their money.
